Please note that there has been a discussion on this forum on this kind of a problem. As you can see, I strongly advocate knowing the gamma function.
I hope you will enjoy it.

I think when you were showing it was a PDF you meant to have x^1 (or just x), not x^r - just nitpicking typos .

Default Typo

I most certainly did! Thank you for the correction, I will repost it corrected in just a moment. The same link:
http://www.math.ilstu.edu/krzysio/10...O-Exercise.pdf
should have the corrected file without a typo now. I apologize for the typo, and again, appreciate your correction.

Yours,
Krzys'

Default question

Question:

Doesn't the exponential distribution with the coefficient 1/3 have a mean of 1/2 instead of 2...therefore the E(X)= 2/3*1 + 1/3*1/2 = 5/6.

Default 2 or a half

Indeed, and I even wrote that, and then copied it wrong. So sorry, I will post a corrected one in just a moment. Thanks so much for your correction.
